Jesse Daniel Edwards – Philadelphia lyrics

I swore I'd be there for you until the bitter end
But the time to prove it to you has come and gone
And come again
I won't say that I don't love you still
Because that's a lie
If I never get to Philadelphia
I'll regret it until the day I die

[Verse 1]:
If you had told me back then
That I would lose her in the end
It would have made no difference
It wouldn't change anything
I could have tried a little harder
Made the days a little longer
Been stronger
Maybe that would have changed everything

[Verse 2]:
I could have gone running after you
And done what desperate people do
You walked into that setting sun
And I was desperate as anyone
So I'm going to work hard every day
Put a little money away
I'm leaving this two-star town
And I'll never look back again
